Old Man Birthday Card

I've been pondering what type of card to make for my Dad this year. He really has a sense of humor and so I was searching online and found this poem...(which I changed just a bit)....

Just because it is your birthday
Don't despair, oh no
Overnight you won't discover
You've lost your get up and go.
Nor will you become all wrinkled,
Nor ache from head to toe.
So even though you are ripening
Don't regard it as a blow.
You won't suddenly become decrepit....

.... Cuz Mom said that happened long ago!

When I read this I had to laugh and knew that my Dad would smile on the search for the perfect "things" to put on the card. I LOVE MTC as it allowed me to find this funny old man to use on this card! After a few minutes of tweeking, here he is! LOL.... (and no, my dad really isn't that old but..... grin .....

The car came from here (Thank you so much Amanda!) if you want to grab it ...

Anyway, it seems manly cards are the hardest, but I LOVE how this one turned out! Do you like my old man?
